Lower Bann Canoe Trail

Stretching from Lough Neagh to the Atlantic Ocean, this 58km Canoe Trail provides a unique way to experience the beautiful River Bann.

Passing through constantly changing scenery, the trail offers canoeists both tranquil waters and some faster flowing sections and is suitable for canoeing enthusiasts of all abilities.

The river is steeped in history dating back to Mesolithic times. From the trail’s head at Toome, the river flows into Lough Beg – a beautiful area that is rich in wildlife. From Lough Beg it narrows at Newferry and acts for most of its length as the boundary between counties Londonderry and Antrim. On entering its last stretch towards the Atlantic Ocean it passes through the town of Coleraine. The trail finishes at Ballywoolen – beside a beautiful nature reserve owned by the National Trust and approximately 1.5 km from the Barmouth.
